Let’s rebatch some soap and turn old soap in to new soaps!
Rebatching soap is essentially the process of melting down existing soap and turning it into a new soap. Some soapmakers dread it, possibly because they feel they are trying to “save” a batch that failed for various reasons (be it an undesired scent, color, design, or an omission of an ingredient) and don’t want to remember the “fail”. Or, they have had so many failed rebatches that they don’t want to invest the time. But trust me, once you know the secrets rebatching will soon become one of your favorite processes for making soap! And, don’t forget that you can rebatch soap to utilize soap scraps! Those end pieces, shavings, and other “leftovers” from the production process that would otherwise go to waste… yeah, well I turned them into my top selling holiday product, and the recipe is included in this tutorial!
